Fantastic walk up La Rocca. Totally enjoyed the history and the exercise. The temple near the summit was a bonus. Great views of the town below. Photo ops abounded!

Amazing views overlooking Cefalu and along the coast are the ample rewards for climbing to top of the 250 m La Rocco. Look for the signposted path along the right side of the Duomo in the main piazza. Follow the signs to the base of...More
